People of Albuquerque New Mexico and surrounding areas!!! You have a GEM here!!!!! GOTTA EAT MORE, is what my GEM stands for. I literally just made that up as I was typing, just go with it. We ate quite a few places during our road trip, and THIS is by fare my favorite place. The staff were all genuine and nice, it was in a little area perfect for shopping. Nice inside and out. It was a perfect day to sit outside as well. Heck, even the restrooms were nice! And the food, oh the food. Let me tell you about the food.
We ordered table side, guac to start off. My wife ordered the Quesadillas and Guac (she likes guacamole) and I ordered the Backstreet Nachos. Our server was super nice and friendly and was easy to talk to about our travels. I told her I would be writing this entry, but not sure if she even remembers us cause it’s been a while. I forget her name, sad to say, but she was awesome and I hope she sees this. The table side guacamole was great. I love that they put cheese on everything. Give me more! Love the chips too, perfect for scooping salsa and guac. My wife’s quesadillas were tasty as well. Lots of cheese and chicken. They aren’t greedy with their ingredients. And I’m okay with that. Now the Nachos… oh the nachos. How wonderful those nachos were. And man did they pile those nachos up! So tasty. That pulled pork works wonders with the cheese, hatch green chile and relish that the put on there. My only regret is going in there not starving. I’m ashamed to say that I could NOT finish this plate. Yes, I did have plenty of salsa, quac and chips but that’s still no excuse. Unfortunately I could not take a to-go box since we were traveling and no where near our next hotel.
If I ever pass through Albuquerque again, you better believe I’m stopping here. I want to try everything on this menu! This is a MUST if you’re here. Don’t take my word for it, look at the pictures! I’m drooling looking at them.
